Busy Tonight Plot: What is it about?
The host Busy Phillipps goes beyond her most popular Instagram stories and reveals her candid moments raw and uncut in front of the live studio audience. She also talks about the topics which are the main highlights of the week and can arouse the attention of the crowd. She talks about almost anything, gives her own point of view, offers entertaining and unfiltered content to the viewers and the live studio audience. She also covers some hilarious and unique topics which are extremely buzzworthy.
When Busy was asked why she wasn’t influenced by other show hosts, this was her reply “What happened to me and, like, my grand epiphany career-wise in the last several years – which is so intrinsically tied to my social media presence – was that, after 20 years of playing some incredibly beloved characters, the thing that people freaked the fuck out about was me. And when I started putting that into the world, that was the response that I was getting back was, like, ‘I want more of that. Who is that girl? Can we see that girl on television?’ That girl hasn’t been written. So why don’t I just be me, and let’s do it this way? So in terms of looking at other hosts, I didn’t really consider that because all I knew was that the success of this show sort of lives and dies on me not losing sight of myself.”
